Employment Lawyer for highly Skilled Migrant
Facing redundancy as a Higlhy Skilled Migrant?
Are you a highly skilled migrant facing redundancy in the Netherlands? As a Kennismigrant, you are entitled to a 3-month search period to find a new job when you become unemployed, regardless of who terminated the employment. However, if you are unable to secure a job with a recognized sponsor within the given timeframe, your permit will be revoked.
We understand that being made redundant in a foreign country can be a challenging situation. In situations where you are concerned about losing your job and are uncertain about your legal rights and options, seeking the guidance of a lawyer can provide you with the necessary insight and advice. A lawyer can assist you in understanding your legal position and represent you in mediation or negotiation with your employer, if required.
If you are presented with a settlement agreement, it is recommended that you seek the advice of a lawyer before signing any documents. They may be able to help you negotiate better terms that are more favorable to you. If you have already accepted a settlement agreement, it is important to act quickly and seek legal advice as you have a limited period of 14 days to reconsider your acceptance.
